Baxi’s combi, heat only and system gas boilers are known for their high energy efficiency and reliability, and the sheer depth to the range that this company offers is impressive. So how much does a Baxi boiler cost, and what kind of models do they make?
Here is an overview of three of Baxi’s most popular products, with a guide to performance and price.
Baxi Platinum C40 HE A
This combi condensing boiler is perfect for small to medium sized properties. With a heat output of 40kW, this boiler will be perfect for providing heat and hot water for a typical a three bedroom house, although the same boiler is available in smaller versions, with 24, 28 and 33kW outputs. Because it’s a combi boiler, it is capable of producing hot water on demand, which means that you won’t need a separate cylinder for hot water storage. With a casing depth of just 35cm, this boiler is designed to be mounted on a wall, but can also fit neatly into cupboards – and no air vent is necessary, although some space around the boiler is required.
With regards to performance, this boiler has a central heating output between 9 and 32kW and a heating efficiency of 88.9%. The hot water heat output is an impressive 40kW and the water flow rate is 16.4 litres a minute, with a hot water efficiency of 62.2%. A typical price for a Baxi Platinum C40 boiler is £1,300.
Baxi Neta-tec Combi 33 GA
This boiler is specifically designed for smaller homes, where space is at a premium, and it can be fitted neatly into standard kitchen cabinets of 90x50x30cm. The maximum heat output of 33kW means that this boiler could be used in a three bedroom house, although smaller versions are also available. As it’s a combination boiler, it can produce hot water on demand (again, no need for a storage cylinder) , but whenever you turn a hot tap on, it will switch the central heating off until the tap has been turned off.
In terms of performance, this boiler has a broad central heating output range of between 4.7 and 33 kW, with efficiency at 89%. The hot water output is 33kW, with a water flow rate of 13.5 litres a minute and efficiency at 62.3%. This boiler comes with a two-year parts and labour warranty and will typically cost around £800.
Baxi Duo-tec 2 Combi 28 GA
This boiler is ideal for use in well-insulated homes that don’t have need for too much heating power, but need more power for the supply of hot water. Smaller homes with one or two bedrooms are the most suitable for this particular boiler. The concealed controls give plenty of useful information about how to use the boiler, and it can be mounted on a wall or in a cupboard.
The heat output of this boiler is between 3.8 and 24kW. The very low minimum heat output means that this boiler is ideal for homes that don’t need a huge amount of heating. However, it is capable of heating radiators quickly, and the heat efficiency is 89%. Hot water output is 28kW, with a water flow rate of 11.5 litres per minute and an efficiency of 62.3%. You can expect to spend around £900 on this boiler from Baxi.
